Excellent cafe and shop. Beautiful gardens with many interesting plants. The bonus of access to a small beach at the end of the garden. Chosen over other nearby gardens as we could wander freely with our elderly whippet feeling quite relaxed.

Yet another Cornish attraction which embraces the all round benefits of allowing owners with dogs. Dogs like gardens too you know and non-dog owners like dogs too! Absolutely breathtaking garden of tropical treats and lush landscapes. The staff were friendly and informative and even in October the garden was stunning; bamboo and ferns were impressive, hydrangeas were still looking chipper... More

A very pretty (yes, still a lot of colour when we visited 16/10/14) well laid out garden, most interesting both from the point of view of adults and also children. Dogs are allowed in on lead, even into the restaurant! We thoroughly enjoyed our day, and the ticket allows to revisit during the whole week. Not National Trust but well... More

Beautiful gardens, lovely walk and really interesting plants. One of Cornwalls hidden gems. Whether you are on holiday or live locally, Trebah should be on your list of places to visit

We visited in October, which is perhaps not the most colourful time for a garden, but there was so much to see. The planting was truly inspired, two acres of a variety of hydrangeas in just one part of the valley running down to the beach, bamboos in profusion and a wide range of different walks. Memorable!

For gardeners this is a wonderful place. Built in a valley the views are fantastic from anywhere in the garden. You can spend a full day walking around, but do it more than once as you miss loads the first time and don't forget a sit on the beach with an ice cream.

The amazing variety of this long, meandering garden must surely delight anyone able to traverse it (not suitable for wheelchairs, to put it mildly). Cornwall's mild climate has been exploited cleverly to create spectacular swathes of colour, stunning trees, huge banks of flowers, all sorts of nooks and crannies for children and adults to hide in. Out of the way,... More

A truly spectacular garden with not only wonderful planting, but a beautifully relaxed atmosphere. Having been left frustrated and perplexed by The Lost Gardens of Heligan a few days earlier ( it seems to have completely lost its sense of purpose), it was a joy to see such a well cared for garden, that not only pays tribute to its...

This was a lovely day out enjoyed by my partner and I. It is a picture perfect garden which leads down the gentle hill to a beach. There were trees/plants of all sizes and variations. The garden feels like a secret garden giving up it's many surprises as you walk through it. The large display of colourful flowers surrounded by... More
